There are scores of federal programs for persons with disabilities. The National Academy for State Health Policy has prepared the Guide to Federal Programs for Persons with Disabilities as a resource for federal and state policy makers. The guide offers an overview of 129 programs.
The primary source of information for the Guide was the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (1993 and 1994). Other materials reviewed include the United States Code, various publications by the Congressional Research Office, and the Preliminary Status Report of the Disability Policy Panel (March 1994).
